    Default Water inlet pics please

    I'm rebuilding a 18' earl smith. I decided to use tramsom plates, but the pump has the stock set back. The transom cuts across the middle of my dominator inspection plate. Anybody have pics of how they got water thru the transom off the pump? There are only about 3-4" to work with. Not alot of room. Thanks Guys

    Use AN fittings and 90* out of pump and hose it to a 90* then use a bulkhead fitting going through the plate!
    Or you can cut a hole and pipe it through the plate! These are the way I have seen them done!

    Thanks for the pics guys. I would think the 90* fitting at the pump would have to be a swivel fitting? Otherwise wouldn't the hose end contact the suction housing when you tried to tighten it?

    The nut will spin around the flared fitting that goes inside the hose. Just get it lined up where you want it, and tighten it down. I got stuck building hoses like those at my last job for a few months.

    Some AN fittings are swivel and some are solid! Oh yes you will pay more for the better type!
    You can tighten and then loosen the fitting on a non swivel pull the hose to you then retighten till in the spot you want the hose to be in!

    Default Thanks for the Pics guys.

    I tried to fit a 90* AN fitting on the pump but with the AN to NPT adapter there was not enough room between the transom plate and pump. I thought I was going to have to eat the $60 i spent on the hose and fittings when I went to Lowes and found this brass plumming fitting. It's a "block" with NPT pipe thread on one end and a female NPT tapped in at 90*. Just what I needed.
